BRADY STREET

Brady Street is on Milwaukee's East Side, the liberal side of town.  It is known for its diversity of shops and restaurants, and I thought it might provide some opportunities for taking photos.  I have to admit to being a bit disappointed.  I just don't think I saw much of what I was looking for, or else I just didn't have the vision to capture what was there.  I did get a few shots, however, and thought I would post them here.

There was color, as in the following . . .



. . . and whimsy.


I particularly liked the second storefront shot because of the abstract reflections in windows, thought there is part of a bicycle wheel in the lower right corner that I could have done without.

I also liked the following street scene, especially for the individual I caught reading in the second story window.


But some of the scenes seemed better in black & white.



Are there more and more tattoo parlors, or am I just imagining things?


And why would someone go to a place with the name Cutthroat?

I did spot some stacks of metal chairs outside one of the restaurants that provided some interesting abstracts.



I converted these to B&Ws also, although it wouldn't have made much difference.
